Ultimately, the biggest proof that the Bengals have depth and talent is Vincent Rey. With Maualuga out, Rey has stepped into the mold and has had two terrific games starting. Over the past two weeks, Rey has recorded 27 tackles, three sacks, and an interception. Last game, Rey had 14 passes thrown his way, and while nine were completed, he allowed only an average of 4.3 yard per reception. Rey has come on this team and is truly making a name for himself, which is a great testament to how depth on this team can step up.

Every team has injuries, but the Bengals have a great deal of depth to make up for it. While big names always help out a team, it was the unsung heroes that helped swing this game. Dre Kirkpatrick recorded a sack, James Harrison an interception, Jermaine Gresham with a touchdown reception, Shawn Williams tipped a kick (was not considered a block), Sanu threw for 25 yards and caught a touchdown, Jayson DiManche blocked a kick, Tony Dye recovered a fumble for a touchdown, Vincent Rey recorded 12 tackles and Brandon Ghee helped tip a pass that led to an interception.

Those are your unsung heroes for this game, and further proves that depth is transitioning well onto the field.
